Woods’ participation at the Open Championship came just 17 months after his terrifying Southern California car crash in which he almost lost a leg.

Woods, who is 46-years-old, became emotional after the round at St. Andrews, saying that it may be his last time playing in the Open Championship at the iconic course.

“I’ve been lucky enough to be doing this since 1995, and I don’t know if I’ll be physically able to play another British Open here at St. Andrews,” Woods said. “I certainly feel like I’ll be able to play more British Opens, but don’t know if I’ll be around when it comes back around here. The warmth and the ovation on 18 … it got to me.”
